Thinking about starting a Parish Nurse Ministry in your congregation? We have a Parish Nurse Starter Kit available above for you to download and use. Mention your interest in serving as parish nurse to your Pastor and consider taking the online course offered by the Wisconsin Lutheran College Nursing Department in the fall of 2015. Pray that an Antioch II Foundation grant is awarded as a matching funds grant to help with the tuition costs for the course!
Why take this Parish Nurse Course from WLC?
Pastor Mike Woldt from David's Star Lutheran in Jackson, WI. in a letter of support for the course says, “Current and future nurses will benefit from a course in parish nursing taught from a confessional Lutheran perspective. Good training will help them share the law and gospel message of Scripture with the people they serve. Good training will help them function within the framework of the congregation and in partnership with the called leaders of the church. Good training will help them recognize opportunities for serving God’s people with the abilities they possess and the skills they have cultivated as practicing nurses.”
"If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides,
so that in all things God may be praised through Christ Jesus."
1 Peter 4:11
